George Roach, Chief Executive of Premier commented, "the additional tenements in Zimbabwe complement our existing exploration projects and add potential for further discovery as well as the possibility of consolidating existing artisanal exploitation already prevalent in some of these additional areas.

The tenement acquired in Mozambique has reports of extensive illegal artisanal gold mining and Premier will immediately arrange a site presence and in conjunction with the Mines Department, plans to bring this under control while we understand the resource and the extent of the opportunity. I look forward to personally getting to this site as soon as possible and providing further updates as this develops."
